Hi, I'm new to the forum but I've lurked off and on for years and have had by BGE for about 5 years now.
So, I have a question (actually, I'll probably have a lot now that I'm officially on board) about charcoal storage. Does leaving the bags exposed to routine rain and the elements create any problems long term? By long term I'm talking about 12-18 months at the extreme and I'm not talking about issues related to the bag degenerating but rather just the charcoal itself. Also, I'm not talking about leaving it soaking in standing water nor issues associated with it being wet right after a rain and being difficult to ignite and burn.
I've gone overboard in purchasing charcoal and have exceeded my garage capacity. I know I leave a bag or two that I'm using outdoors and short term it never seems to suffer ill effects. And, I've left my wood chunks outside for years and haven't noticed much difference. So, does leaving charcoal outside cause any problems that you guys know about?
Thanks and I'm looking forward to contributing!
